I did manage to make lentil soup on New Year’s Day. There is a tradition I remember learning about while I lived in Italy as a teen. They believe that eating lentils on the first day of the year will bring you prosperity in the New Year. I am not usually a superstitious person, but this one has always stuck with me. There is something so simple and humble about it.
I hope 2010 is full of love and brings much prosperity to you.
